No holidays and mandatory overtime, workers at Foxconn plants are sweating it all day and night to make iPhone 12 production run at maximum capacity. Foxconn is also not allowing employees to take national holidays. As per an article by South China Morning Post, first reported by 9to5 Mac, “Employee Wang Guofeng said overtime work had increased since summer and most workers were allowed to take only four days off per month.”
Despite the high workload and stress, it seems employees are looking at it as a way for earning more money. Foxconn is offering bonuses, referral incentives and more to employees. People are willing to work on national holidays as “according to Chinese labour law the salary triples on the first three days [of the Mid-Autumn Festival].”
“The factory’s iPhone assembly unit has offered a 10,000 yuan bonus for any worker who started after September 18, stays for at least 90 days and works at least 55 days, according to one recruitment ad. The bonus was 8,500 yuan for people who joined after September 26,” as per the report by South China Morning Post.
The government officials are also helping Foxconn to not let the pandemic affect workflow. They are reportedly helping around 2 lakh workers join work as quickly as possible. “In June alone, exports from the Foxconn factory surged 50.6% from a year earlier,” it added.
Meanwhile, Apple may unveil the new iPhone 12 series phones at a special event on October 13, as per a report by AppleInsider. The report adds that the preorders for the new iPhones could begin from October 16. The report cites information received from a tip “sent by someone self-identified as working for a carrier in the Netherlands.” All the new iPhones are expected to have 5G capability.
